Dear little Isle so fair, song

Oh tonight in fancy come and take a trip across the sea
And meet your old companions in the place you long to be
For stamped upon our memories are the friends we used to know
So just tonight we’ll revel in the thoughts of long ago.

Oh down little lanes and meadows we’ll take a stroll once more
And meet the laughing boys and girls we met in days of yore
The river woods and moonlight nights have the same old charm still
And the whistler on a summer’s eve comes rambling o’er the hill.

Oh do you recall sweetheart of mine the place where I met you
Like a rose‘s bough of love’s sweet song when love’s young dream came true
Our hearts were filled with love’s sweet song when you promised to be true
And I forever pledged my word that that I‘d be always mine.

Oh I’ll never forget when we set sail across the ocean blue
I stood on deck and slowly watched the mountains fade from view
At the last glimpse of old Ireland’s shore our hearts went up in prayer
Saying God forbid we would ever forget our dear little isle so fair.
